Select matching delimiter should be limited to just the delimiter #2367
When this feature triggers it basically starts a multi-cursor selection and then just lets multi-cursor handle everything. This makes for annoying use-cases where starting a regular selection turns into a multi-selection.
Steps to Reproduce
Create a JS file with contents:
Press shift+left twice
The first iteration should select the delimiters, the second should revert to single select because obviously you're no longer intending to select the delimiter if your selection expands beyond delimiters.
It selects the delimiters as well as the characters in front of them.
I'm probably experiencing the same thing. I just upgraded to 10.2 and if I shift-select quoted text using arrow keys to add to the selection I get two cursors (weird) that keep selecting more than I want. It seems to depend on the language I'm viewing as.
